Severe storms leave four dead – Telemundo Houston

HOUSTON – At least four people died Thursday during severe storms that ravaged much of the city, Mayor John Whitmire confirmed.

Millions of people were left without power, and some areas expected to take 24 hours to restore service. 911 lines are high, he added.

He explained that damage was felt across the city, especially in the central and eastern areas, and reiterated the importance of staying home due to damaged power lines, downed power poles and debris on the streets.

Major storm damage

Whitmire said they are currently assessing the damage and rescuers, police and firefighters are assisting the community.

Classes were cancelled

Amid the devastation caused by the intensity of the storms, several school districts in our area canceled classes on Friday, including:

  • Houston School District
  • Spring Branch ISD
  • Crosby I.S.T
  • Sheldon ISD
  • Cy Fair
  • Southwest Public Schools
  • They hope to return to classes as usual on Monday, May 20.

Thousands were left without electricity

Much of the Houston metropolitan area was covered by floodwaters, primarily in the counties and areas north of Interstate 10, ahead of rain expected this afternoon.

This is a growing story. Come back for more updates.
